Flyer printing

Flyers – the universal advertising medium More information Hide details

Flyers are a popular advertising medium for businesses. They take very little time and effort to produce, they are low-cost and best quality flyer printing remains affordable even in large runs. Flyers provide potential customers with important information about company services, details about new products, special campaigns or events in a concise format. That is why flyers appeal to recipients. For the best possible advertising results and lowest possible waste, there are a few ground rules which should be followed. When designing your flyer, the description of your product's USP should be kept as concise, accurate and as focussed as possible. For example, flyers targeted at young people demand a different approach than booklets for senior citizens. It is also important that the flyer contain key details about your company, the product or service advertised on the flyer, contact information, or how long a campaign or special offer is valid.

The layout of the flyer communicates the advertising message on a visual and emotional level, and thus draws the reader's conscious – and subconscious – attention to the main message. Whether flyers, business cards or booklets, success depends upon balance: optimum layout and content proportion, page number and size, font, graphics and paper weight or grammage. As a rule, flyers in A4 or square format attract attention faster than a flyer in A6 or DL format.

Print finishing with an ultraviolet coating gives your flyers that 'extra something’ and makes them just that much more exclusive. In addition to lending printed products a distinctive appearance and feel, uv coating is a very good choice for advertising materials that will be exposed to moisture, bending or sunlight. As well as enhancing the colour brilliance, uv coating increases the durability of your prints. Our friendly customer service team is happy to help you select the right paper and finishing to produce an optimal print result.

Options for printing flyers More information Hide details

We print two basic kinds of advertising flyers. Our online print shop offers you the classic, unfolded advertising flyer printed on one or both sides, according to your specifications. We use the term leaflet when referring to folded sheets or folded flyers, which can be printed with a minimum of four sides and up to a maximum of twelve sides. Flyers with folding & perforation are available from our online printers in all standard sizes (A4, A5, A6, A7, A8, and DL), in either portrait or landscape orientation. Paper grammage for flyers is available as copy or art paper from 80 to 100 gsm. We print art in gloss or silk finishes and on paper from 135 to 300gsm.

    For colour design of your flyers, the following options are available:
  • 1/1-coloured (black)
  • 2/2-coloured (black + 1 HKS special colour)
  • 4/4-coloured (euroscale)
  • 4/1-coloured (euroscale and black)
  • 5/5-coloured (euroscale + 1 HKS special colour)

A comparison of flyer folds More information Hide details

The following options are available for folded flyers: roll fold, open (6-side) or closed (8-side) gatefold as well as Z-fold (accordion and concertina folds). Both folding & perforation is done at our print shop for a small surcharge.

The roll fold is a type of parallel fold in which the left and right sides are folded around the centre of the sheet without changing direction. A 6-side folded sheets has three columns on each side of the paper available for printing. The roll fold principle can be used for 8 or 10 side folded sheets as well. The roll fold is our customer favourite – at the very least because it is the easiest to handle. The Z fold (zig-zag) is also known as accordion fold an also covers the variations concertina fold and bi or tri fold concertina. Here, two or more pages of the sheets are folded in different directions, formin a zig-zag. With gate-fold, the outer sides of the flyer are folded inwards, like window shutters or a winged altar and do not overlap each other. In a six-page folder, these two flaps form the centre section.

Perforations for customer replies
It is recommended that perforations are made on paper with a grammage of at least 135gsm, such as art paper etc. These are used when vouchers, membership or registration cards, contact details or other important information have to be cleanly detached from the flyer or leaflet, without scissors, to obtain feedback from customers. On folded sheets, a maximum of three perforations – in various sizes – are possible. In a classic flyer without folds, a maximum of six parallel perforations are possible and can be either continuous or interrupted.
In artwork files, the perforations must be shown as dotted lines to guarantee a correct print result. Alternatively, a perforation template in PDF format can be submitted together with the artwork files.

Our website offers many ready-made print templates. Our online print shop only accepts completed print files which you can upload directly into your customer account.
